About the Name Red

Because the letter R is the flagship letter of all things cheekily romantic (racy, red- blooded, rosy, roguish, rapture, and ripe ), its combination with the letter D tends to bring out its darker elements. For even though the D is often considered to be the icon of discipline and dignity, it can also be the harbinger of doom, destruction, and danger. This is why, when the R and D are found in close proximity, they tend to form words with distinctly impudent tones: rude, rowdy, ribald, randy, reprimand, and ridiculous.

It’s hard to predict which RD you’re going to encounter on any given day: the moody obsessive RD, or the easygoing dapper one. Either way, you won’t be able to ignore these energized firebrands who have personalities as hot as flames and just as dangerous. But don’t let their explosive nature intimidate you; for RD people also have extraordinarily warm hearts that temper their extravagant dispositions, and they would never dream of using their dominant natures for anything other than forming deeply intimate relationships.

Many people have love/hate relationships with the RDs in their lives, and this might be because RDs can be so uncommunicative about their intentions that it can be hard to predict their next moves. Still, RDs are also deeply devoted to their loved ones and would go to any lengths to ensure their happiness. RDs have their own high expectations of friendship as well and if they were to have family crests, they would say something like: Once a friend, always a friend. One betrayal and you’re history.

RDs are drawn to jobs that promise them enough leeway to make their own decisions (and those that offer the most liberal vacation policies). And even though hard work is not the RDs’ cup of cha, it’s a reflection of their natural intelligence that they invariably manage to succeed in the workplace. Those RDs lucky enough to find jobs that encompass one of their passions (science, philosophy, politics and money), odds are they’re going to make their mark in a big way.

When it comes to their intimate relationships, their high emotional metabolism makes for extremely intense unions, and even if your RD sweetheart isn’t the kind to shower you with roses and cards, chances are that they’ll make up for it with surprises and romantic adventures. But don’t expect RDs to throw themselves into relationships without a safety valve for their emotions… they are always poised to bail out if things don’t go according to plan. Those who appreciate high drama in their lives, will find the RD to be a perfect mate.
